Back to Wax #10: Twinkle twinkle

February 12th, 2018

I got into the Throwing Muses because I was sweet on a girl in high school who was a fan of the band. Though it turned out her fandom began and ended with a copy of Hunkpapa she picked up on the recommendation of some music rag, my interest in the band managed to outlive […]

As great as I’m told my memory is, things to fall through the cracks on a regular basis. This is especially true when there isn’t a Big Event to help me fix the proper sequence of events, and I don’t notice the omission until some stray stimulus eventually jars it loose. The early months of […]

From Brinstar with love

February 6th, 2018

(Today’s topic has been rattling inside my skull for a few weeks now, but pal Rusty’s latest P-Swap entry moved to action with its magnificence.) My buddy Damian was the only other kid in our junior high who owned a Sega Master System. It (alongside a shared love of Robotech and role-playing games) was the […]

Back to Wax #9: True love ways

February 5th, 2018

Our weekday evening routine tends to be fairly consistent. We get home around seven, scoop any mail or packages from the front porch, flip some lights on, and make sure the animals haven’t caused any mischief.

Fun Fact: Up until the end of 2016, I never owned London Calling on vinyl. My original copy was the cassette released, purchased in the summer of 1989 on the advice of a ex-punk prep cook at the hospital where I worked. He was the person who re-introduced my to The Clash, perhaps as a […]

If nothing else, my return to record collecting has made things easier for Maura on the gift-giving front. No more struggling to decipher my ever-shifting set of interests or attempting to second-guess my penchant for instant gratification — just ask if there’s a specific album I’m looking for and let some online retailer handle the […]

Abridged too far

January 19th, 2018

Some friends and I were recently discussing the various books that hepped them to the whole reading thing when we were kids, and I had a little difficulty thinking of any specific ones at first. Books have been a central part of my life for as long as I can remember. My parents may have […]
